Overview

More
A popular weekly farmers market held every Friday morning from 9am til 12.30pm. Only 20 minutes from Christchurch. The market operates in all weather all year round. Our market supports over 50 local food producers and growers. Visitors mingle with the locals to get the best of the freshest breads, organic veges and seasonal fruits, coffee, hot brunch selections, artisan products, fish, beer, wine, plants and flowers. Winter is a busy market and summer is huge. Ohoka is a country market located in the domain. It is popular so expect to walk a short distance on busy days. Childrens playground, toilets and EFTPOS available.

Oh my God how much did you say those caulis were This is where you go if you want to get your veges for twice the price of the shops. Tastes fresher or does it. Chemical free or is it You decide

2 mustangs? Are you having a laugh. As if the name wasn’t enough to question your ridiculous critique then your chained tiger blows it out of the water. What on earth are you doing at a farmers market! Say no more please.

Great little market although I don't think it's technically a farmers market. Has lots of different items for sale. Parking is okay although some more organisation would be helpful. Also last time I was there was only one coffee place . More coffee places pleaseMore

Thanks for your feed back. You may have found that Farmers Markets differ in every region and generally that's dependent upon what that area is capable of producing and dishing up weekly. To be able to provide an outlet for local growers and producers on...More

This has to be the best market around this area in its diversity of high quality produce and products. It is always popular and you have to get there early to get around everything. Definitely a must on a Friday morning.

This is our favourite market, great selection, good atmosphere with mothers, tots and dogs in for a cuppa, and clean toilets, all endorsed by the local King Arthur III. More seating and car-parking would be better.
